Oh boy, I love what I do and every day it just gets better and better.
I'm trying to push my enameling skills hoping one day to be able to call myself an enamelist, instead of a rank beginner.
The beginner title suits me. Enameling is a lifetime achievement type of endeavor and since I only have 30 more years or so I'd best get moving. If you know me you'd hear me giggle right now.
My bestie and I are heading to a class with a Master Enamelist this fall. We're both so excited we can hardly stand it.
I think this is my third cloisonne piece ever but I'm definitely loving it and my skills are improving rapidly.
Couple more weeks to the State Fair awards ceremony. I wonder if I'll get a ribbon? How thrilling!
Life is good, in every way. A dear friend recently posted a wonderful thought about realizing that she's got everything she ever dreamed of. She happens to be a person who finds amazing grace in her every day life as well as the bigger things. It's certainly a good way to live. When I get weighed down with the negatives in life I have only to think of those I love and the joy they bring into my life and my heart lifts. Then the corners of my mouth follow suit and soon I'm happily back on track. I know I only have this minute to feel joy.
I wish you joy, this minute, the next is up to you.
